“If you feel judged by others, remember that they don't live in your house at night, and they don't care for your child. You do, and you are capable of doing the right thing for your child.”
Alice Callahan, The Science of Mom: A Research-Based Guide to Your Baby's First Year

“Among all of the topics I cover in this book, the choice to vaccinate on schedule is backed by the strongest, clearest, biggest pile of evidence.”
Alice Callahan, The Science of Mom
